Feed253 2017 Food Drive

Feed253 began in 2009 as an office food drive by Heidi Stoermer and Karin Dhaese. We called it our ThanksGIVING Food Drive, and collected funds from friends, coworkers, and family before going on a shopping trip to a local grocery store. The meat department manager cut us a great deal, and the first year we donated 25 turkeys and fixings to the Rescue Mission in Tacoma, WA.

Each year we've increased our donations with the help of generous donors. In 2015, we were able to provide 751 turkeys, 1,400 pounds of potatoes, and 600 pounds of fresh produce and assorted food and pantry donations to local soup kitchens and charities.

That's over 12,500 pounds of food, and enough turkey for more than 10,000 meals.

In addition to providing ThanksGIVING food supplies for the YWCA, the Guadalupe House, and Network Tacoma, the Rescue Mission, St. Leo's Food Connection, and other local groups, we are part of the year-round weekly meal program at the YWCA.

Our mission here at Feed253 is to make it as easy as possible for our donors to give - we accept and will collect any food or monetary donations. Our time is 100% donated. We use our collective buying power to negociate better-than-advertised deals with local grocery stores and food vendors, which helps us maximize our donation.

For 2017, we've set our goal at $7500. Please share the word and help us make a difference in our community!
